INTRODUCTION Conflicting findings have been reported for associations of primary brain tumors and constitutive polymorphisms in glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs). METHODS We genotyped population-based cases ascertained through rapid case ascertainment and controls identified through random-digit dialing in the San Francisco Bay Area between 1991-1994 (series 1) and 1997-2000 (series 2) for homozygous deletion or presence of GSTM1 ( micro ) and GSTT1 (theta) genes and for two variants in GSTP… CONTINUE READING
